It Looks Like Thousands of Stars (#107)

It Looks Like Thousands of Stars (#107)
(Featuring a two inter-leaved programs that focus on a similar theme, and contain content from the 90’s incarnation of our program that aired on KWVA in Eugene, OR: 17 April 2012 on BlasphuphmusRadio.com and 18 July 2007 on KPSU.)

Join us for a kaleidoscopic journey through layers and layers of time-traveling wonder, as we follow the earliest days of this program from the late ’90’s, through the lens of the early 2000s, as re-interpreted in 2007, and again in 2012. With Negativland with us to help us make sense of the journey, we make the simple observation that, yes, it does look like Thousands of Stars. But what does that mean?

I keep bouncing around through time and space, from radio station to radio station, and offer a mish-mash of what my show was like in the olden days, 20 years ago. While this doesn’t represent what the show was actually like to hear in the ’90’s, it comes close, and in many ways, it mimics the kinds of the shows I started doing in 2007, and ever since then.

In the ’90’s, I only had CDs and LPs. There was no pre-editing for presentation on the air. I just mixed those elements, live, without much thought as to what I was doing. I would make up themes and ideas on the spot, have friends join me, and just say whatever I wanted on the air, for fun. And it was. It got me hooked on DJing, on Radio, and on sticking with this hobby for 20 years. In many ways this is a 20th Anniversary Broadcast, but really, it only covers the first few years, a poorly documented era that only exists in poorly archived cassettes, transferred digitally. But the mixes are pure and un-edited, and remind me of a time when the computer wasn’t even something I considered an audio tool.

The time-travel schtick is all Negativland’s influence. But they’ve always been an influence, as I’m sure you can tell from listening. Perhaps, if I get really ambitious, I’ll do a similar overview of other periods in the show’s history, but the mix stuff is usually what I find the most interesting. This show has taken many, many forms, and it’s good to know that, as it changes in many ways, in other’s it stays exactly the same.

Enjoy!
